If you have collected a number of images for your blog and you think they are free, it might be worth finding out who else is using them.
Royalty free images are very popular and you’ll find many people all over the world have used them.
When a customer comes to your site and sees an image they know, they are going to make some significant judgements about your business.
They are going to think you are ‘just like the others’.
They are going to assume that you haven’t put much thought into your images and that you might be an unreliable person to do business with.
They might just yawn and think you are hum-drum just like all the others!
Using popular images may save you money but it can and will damage your online reputation.
